  1. See what a pile of … the teacher pay rates are.
    They want equal pay, and yet they don’t think a deputy principal in a big school is worth more than the principal in a one room school in the boondocks.
    They think that kindergarten teachers are just as qualified as university professors.

  2. Orangutan Tamariki
    (apparently only 1 in 6 European kids are involved in that)
    Shows just how dysfunctional and bad Maori “families” are.
    Maori “leaders” should be really ashamed of their non-performance
    Really is time to get rid of the dpb.

    • DPB created their nightmare. As soon as the requirement to look after yourself, work hard, and be responsible for your spawn is thrown out the door, look what it brings us. We have “leaders” who have just thrown ever more millions of dollars at worthless schemes disguised as “well being”.

  3. The guy who died on the Lime E Scooter sadly died of a heart attack.
    So as I said at the time there was no need for a knee jerk reaction to ban them, because of one death!
    Was it Christine Fletcher (i’m not sure) but it was some stupid women who did not wait for the facts.

  4. I have noted all this global warming science and how our climate is going to get a lot warmer.
    Now not a believer so I have a serious question.

    Why, if our climate is going to get hotter, are we being forced to insulate houses and to install heating sources in housing that is rented.
    Seems to me that is a serious contradiction to the warming narrative.

    So who is making the money out of this because it always comes down to money and the recipients of that money?

    • Plus the recent rat population increases due a mega-mast (the last was 45 years ago). A mega-mast is a characterised as a warm year…but according to NIWA propaganda we’ve had record warm years for over a decade now…

      • Just had this by e mail from a correspondent down South:

        WET JACKET PENINSULAS, FIORDLAND, AERIAL 1080 DROP POSTPONED FOR A YEAR

        A 40,000 hectare 1080 poison drop, scheduled to take place in Breaksea Sound, Fiordland “from May 2019” according to recent notifications, has been postponed for twelve months, I’m told by a DoC source. I was told this is presumably because DoC’s tunnel tracking monitoring, which took place about three weeks ago, found only ONE rat in ONE tunnel and NO stoats !!! The tunnel tracking system has been a disaster for their proposed aerial 1080 operation – even DoC would find it hard to justify dumping 1080 on 40,000 hectares for one rat.

        This area has never been 1080-poisoned before. It kind of gives the lie to DoC’s claimed need for 1080 poison, doesn’t it ? An untouched, unpoisoned paradise, relatively rat and stoat free !!

      • Perhaps not.
        Watch next year in the lead up to the 2020 election.

        Extending the power payouts to more families/people is a distinct possibility.
        When you look at the massive student loan bribe that Labour used in 2005 to stay in power a third term and them the Free Tertiary $2.2 billion bribe that they used to get back in after 9 years of neglect then free power for benes and other Labour voters looks minor.

        Discount that bribe at your peril and you already know their decisions seldom, if ever, make economic sense.
        It fits with the immeasurable ‘wellness’ crapola.

  5. The world is heating up. Then it reaches a tipping point and plunges into an ice age. There will be no warning of this other than it will start snowing and not stop for centuries. Just be glad you aren’t going to be around when it happens.

    • It’ll be a wee while before the earth wobbles us back into a glacial period (i.e. an actual ice age). From memory, that’s likely to be 10000 years away.

      That doesn’t mean we won’t get mini Ice Ages like the Maunder and Dalton minimums however. I believe we’re heading for a Dalton minimum based upon sun spot activity (or the lack thereof).

    • True ice ages are based on the Northern Hemisphere getting less sunlight in their summer and longer winters. This is part and parcel of Milankovitch Cycles. The more elliptical the orbit and more axial tilt to favour these conditions, the worse and longer the Ice Age is.

      Right now, the Northern Hemisphere gets a longer summer and shorter winter due to how we’re orbiting around the sun.

      It’s not expected to return to these unfavourable conditions for some time. I suspect we’d notice if our elliptical orbit and axial tilt changed. I also doubt the change is sudden.

      However, sunspot activity, or more correctly the lack thereof, cools the surface of the sun. These are characterised by such phenomena as Maunder and Dalton Minimums. (The edges of sun spots are extremely hot which in turn give extra warmth to our planet).

        No!

        The only way this type of bullsit can be corrected is to do nothing about the scum beating, injuring and yes, murdering their kids except refuse them any sort of support when they do.

        Only then will the fuckwits supposedly leading the scum be forced to do something about it.

        It’s called taking responsibility for your own actions.

            Perhaps he should be taking the colonisation thing up with them before he annoys the crap out of us with his low IQ rantings.

            Davis is just a B grade thug who spends most of his time in witless protection.

            “My mother, who’s Pākehā, is Glenys. Her parents, Ron and Beryl Clow, shifted around a lot so she went to school, for a time, at Kaingaroa, then Russell and on to Bay of Islands College in Kawakawa where she bumped into my father.”

            “My wife, Moira, is from Kaitaia. She’s Pākehā. We met at teachers’ college. And we have three kids. Our eldest daughter is Kelly, who’s 20 in June and is studying law at Auckland University.”

    • Don’t be silly. The Maori elite can have their boxes at EdenPark and have the government bail out their poor Maori. It’s even advantageous for the elite to have their poor remain poor. It gives them a stick they can wield to beat the ‘kind’ government with ad infinitum.

      I also don’t blame the Maori elite for doing this. Whining a bit to get billions is sound strategy. Why our government is so gullible/stupid is the issue.

  8. WTF? China infiltrating our security services?

    This clip is highly disturbing, aside from it being good that the Aussies on Sky Australia poking the borax at Socialist Cindy’s interminable vapid virtue-signalling (The clip starts off with the words “We have the crazy, socialist PM there – Jacinda Ardern – some shocking stuff coming out of New Zealand ….”)

    …they start talking about how widely known it is (I guess outside of highly censored NZ) that the Chinese have infiltrated our security services and NZ is investing in Chinese belt & road projects). It looks like she really, really didn’t want to answer any questions about her stance on China. (Most open & transparent government ever???)

    But, but ……
    China has infiltrated our security services???
    NZ is investing in China’s belt & road projects???
    Is this what foreign interference in another countries elections looks like?

    Have I missed something or has censorship gotten so bad that this stuff has been suppressed, if so are we really in trouble here?

    ALL young offenders now deliberately start demonstrating how dangerously their driving is as soon as a pursuit begins.

    Is this another deliberate, if obtuse, method the CoL are using to increase the average IQ level within New Zealand?

  10. Hey Paddy Gower – how about you do some real investigation on the streets like the Aussies have

    I’m 100% certain that Paddy “left of centre” Gower won’t be out on the streets with a camera like his Aussie counterparts have been – he wouldn’t want to find the same issue here of professional beggar gangs.

    That would shatter his hard left views on NZ. Want to bet we have exactly the same problem here – I’ve seen the type – sneaking looks at their $1299 iPhones while sipping a large double decaff soy machiatto – wouldn’t want our compassionate, virtue-signalling marxist mayors of our major cities finding that they couldn’t waste ratepayers money on the homeless now would we?

    • It’s almost certain to be true, at least here in Wellington.

      Apart from having loads of obese beggars, I’ve also occasionally walked past them as they’re setting up or closing down for the day. In the former, yes, you can witness them checking their messages on their new phones. In the latter, you can witness the pile-high mound of cigarette butts. Every so often, it appears as though a minder turns up and chats to them.

      And so many of them are fat. (Yes, I’ve mentioned this already but I felt it needed repeating).

  11. Māori recidivism: Whānau to take greater role in government initiative
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/393041/maori-recidivism-whanau-to-take-greater-role-in-government-initiative
    “A $98 million plan to tackle high rates of Māori recidivism will involve whānau in rehabilitation strategies, not just prisoners themselves.
    It aims to provide a wrap-around service including trauma and mental health care, housing support for those leaving prison and greater engagement with whānau and iwi from pre-sentence through to release”.

    So another $100 million to be chucked at initiatives involving the holy grail of “whanau”.
    Seems like a rehash of heaps of previous programs the government has chucked money at without any substantial return so can’t see why this will be any different.

    Of course one of the topics for discussion is climate change but that is no problem as they all paddled a canoe to get here.

      The current Police Heirarchy seem to have forgotten this- Though one wonders how much this has to do with Mr Huamaha being best mates with Winston?
      Nonetheless- I lost all respect for New Zealand Police when they bizarrely got involved with the Clark Gayford ‘rumours’ and released that rather cryptic message designed to quell them….

  15. No concession of Ardern’s virtue signal of the “Christchurch Call”. 🙂

    “It is a strong signal in terms of regulation,” said Sonia Cisse, a counsel at law firm Linklaters, adding that it was a world first.
    “Hate speech is no longer considered part of freedom of speech, it’s now on the same level as terrorism.”

    With Facebook’s latest move, France is now a clear front runner in the quest to regulate big social media outlets, and other platforms might follow suite, Cisse said.

    The discussions on how to best regulate tech giants began with a Zuckerberg-Macron meeting last year, followed by a report on tech regulation last month that Facebook’s founder considered could be a blueprint for wider EU regulation. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-tech-exclusive/exclusive-facebook-to-give-data-on-hate-speech-suspects-to-french-courts-minister-idUSKCN1TQ1TJ

    Another encouragement to Ardern and Golly to get ahead with another “virtue signal” for New Zealand to bring thought crimes, to being “hate speech” to terror levels. 🙁

    • Linklaters counsel sounds really jubilant to be pushing this as a world first, and in some way, there will be a connection of influence, back to Ardern and Little.
      Linklaters is a large international law firm with a client base consisting of large global corporate businesses and financial institutions that seem to be driving the globalist/socialist agenda to destroy free speech, individual liberties and freedom.

    • All quietly building into a universal system of control.

      The recommendations include convening individuals and groups with opposing views; working with traditional and social media platforms; engaging in advocacy; and developing guidance for communications to counter hate speech trends and campaigns. While digital technology has provided new areas in which hate speech can thrive, it can also help to monitor activity, target our response and build support for counter-narratives.

      The recent emergence of volunteer groups that are organizing to counter harassment and hate online shows the potential for collaboration. The proposals set out last week by the High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation can play a part. New forms of self-policing by social media platforms, and the commitments included in the Christchurch Call, are another welcome development. https://www.un.org/sg/en/content/sg/speeches/2019-06-18/un-strategy-and-plan-of-action-hate-speech-remarks

      Ardern got a mention.
      Now just what will they do to gain their control?
      Others have some very strong ideas of what is free speech.
      What is “hate speech” and its definitions.

    • The next level of free speech, through hate speech into terrorism, then completed to demanding “death for the infidel” per sharia.

      After U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres unveiled the new “U.N. Strategy and Plan of Action” to fight so-called “hate speech” at a special meeting in the packed Economic and Social (ECOSOC) chamber,
      Pakistan Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi incited more support to to silence any opposition to Islam and its adherents – including speech condemning Islam for its scriptural inciting of terrorists to conduct jihad (holy war) on “infidels.”

      “An inevitable consequence is to fan the flames of bigotry, intolerance, anti-Muslim hatred and xenophobia,” Lodhi proclaimed before ambassadors, senior diplomats and high-ranking U.N. officials, as quoted in a press release, according to MSN.
      “My Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently again called for urgent action to counter Islamophobia, which is today the most prevalent expression of racism and hatred against ‘the other.'”

      Guterres said the overarching goal of the U.N. plan is to identify, prevent and confront what the U.N. and Islamic nations consider “hate speech.” ….

      …. Lodhi ramped up her rhetoric to eradicate all opposition to Islam – not to mention criticism it incurs for the violence and carnage resulting from its call for jihad on “infidels” not submitting to the god of Islam, Allah.

      “We are fully committed to support the U.N.’s strategy on hate speech,” the Pakistani ambassador added.
      “This is a moment for all of us to come together to reverse the tide of hate and bigotry that threatens to undermine social solidarity and peaceful co-existence.”

      The vocal Muslim official wanted to make it clear that absolutely no negative opinions of Islam are to be tolerated. ….

      …. Lodhi is ambassador for a country whose leader wants to kill anyone suspected of even hinting any disrespect toward the founder of Islam is cause for concern to most around the globe.

      “Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been a staunch defender of his country’s blasphemy laws,” the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reported.
      “Last year, he defended laws mandating death for those who offend the Prophet Muhammad by ‘imputation, insinuation or innuendo.’

      Earlier this month, Khan implored OIC nations to play active roles in safeguarding Muslims’ religious sentiments worldwide.

      “It was up to us to explain to the western people the amount of pain they cause us when they ridicule or mock our Holy Prophet,” Khan declared at Organisation of Islamic Countries.
      “I would like to say from this platform that in the forums like the United Nations and the forums like the European Union, we must explain to them that they cannot hurt the sentiments of 1.3 billion people under the garb of freedom of expression.”

    She said “young whipper-snapper” Chris Bishop was after him and getting his hands on “that spending fund of yours, giving money away willy-nilly”.

    This afternoon Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will announce her first reshuffle while in office. She’s said it will be “relatively minor” and she will give everyone fair warning if they are getting moved.

    There is speculation Phil Twyford will lose housing, as the Government’s KiwiBuild scheme fails to fire.

    But Mr Jones remained tight-lipped on whether or not he’d had “the call”.

  19. That CEO treasury guy Maklouth (what ever)
    I feel sorry for him
    He was the CEO, a CEO should not have to resign because of a mistake not in their area of expertise.
    Eg they would have a human resources guy, a technology guy, a pr guy etc etc
    It was the technology guy that should be named and shamed and sacked.

    • No.
      The prick lied repeatedly knowing he was lying.
      He was informed by GCSB and others that there was not a hack.
      He continued to lie.

      Read my lips:
      Gabriel Mahklouf is a liar.
      simples.

      If he was taking the hit for Robertson – I dont think he was initially – then he still knowingly lied in widely distributed media reports and in live interviews.
      He had the information he needed and still lied.
      He became political and that is not his job.

      Not once ounce of sympathy for a well paid repeat liar.
      He is a POS.
      Her had many opportunities to tell the truth and he lied with various different stories.
      Colin Moyle lost his job for the same thing.

  20. Its gonna be great watching Megan 2 pies new a haircut and diet Woods on tv all the time talking about housing.
    And we can all rest easy knowing that Twyford is looking after our economic development.
    Argentina and Venezuela will be good places for him to visit (and stay)

  21. This appointment as Kiwibuild minister could either be fantastic or terrible for Megan Woods.
    The stress of it might take the pounds off her bringing her back to a respectable size or the stress could lead to comfort eating which in turn will be disastrous for parliamentary furniture.

    The government is headed for a bigger than expected budget surplus this year, on the back of a strong tax take and flat spending.

    The surplus for the 11 months to May was nearly $7 billion, up more than half on what was forecast.

    The Treasury says the tax take is close to $2b above expectations, with increases in company, income and GST revenue.

    It says it’s expected that most of that increase will carry through to the full year accounts.

  24. Twyford will retain his Transport portfolio and has been given a new role of Economic Development Minister.

    My god what the fuck would Twyford know that would generate Economic Development. Nothing, nada fuck all. Perhaps he is going to work for Shane.
    As for transport, he has stopped all roading projects. Not doing a lot there. Should have fired him completely.

    Totally useless vitriolic mouth piece.
    9 years to become a fucked up MP.

  25. A lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates.

    To his dismay, there were thousands of people ahead of him in line to see St. Peter. To his surprise, St. Peter left his desk at the gate and came down the long line to where the lawyer was and greeted him warmly. Then St. Peter and one of his assistants took the lawyer by the hands and guided him up to the front of the line, and into a comfortable chair by his desk.

    The lawyer said, “I don’t mind all this attention, but what makes me so special?

    “St. Peter replied, “Well, I’ve added up all the hours for which you billed your clients, and by my calculation you must be about 193 years old!”

  26. A reply within the day from ANZ when I send a customer internal email saying they are bullying Maria Folau

    >
    Thank you for getting in touch regarding your concerns for the recent coverage on New Zealand Netball’s Maria Folau and husband.
    We appreciate your feedback.

    We value our partnership with Netball NZ and any suggestion we have tried to pressure them is absolutely incorrect.

    ANZ NZ does believe in diversity and inclusion – including our customers’ religious beliefs.
    We’re very proud we have a rainbow tick as an employer and over the years have supported rainbow activities in the community.

    We do not support any views or actions that can be interpreted as supporting homophobia.

    We have voiced this stance with NZ Netball, however we will continue to support Netball NZ and the tens of thousands of participants and supporters of the game.

      • Get with the programme. Some are more special than others on the diversidy pyramid.
        I’m with you, when throughout history did choosing special individuals work out well for those sidelined? It hasn’t. ANZ are virtue signalling. It’s not cool, it’s condescending.

  27. Once again though, the government appears cynical in its timing.

    Ms Ardern waited until the last hours of the last day before the longest recess during the sitting programme. She fronted a news conference and the two newly promoted ministers talked to reporters shortly after. But the timing presented others the opportunity to avoid the media as the House rose and MPs were free to depart Parliament within hours of the announcement.

    Ms Woods and Mr Twyford have both declined requests for interviews – issuing statements instead and making the most of the opportunity to avoid any tricky questions.

  28. Rachael, I feel prompted to write this spontaneous outburst! ;=}) . . . please forgive me!

    Since I was naturally and permanently made immune for life through exposure in early childhood, as were so many in the 50’s, and therefore a good thing, looking back – I took little or no notice of the poxy outbreaks of news about either measles outbreaks or “anti-vaxxers” meetings being shut down … until relatively recently. Last year too?

    So I had no opinion or knowledge (talking past received news opinion or raw or refined propaganda) of the issue.

    But now I’ve read this:- and I not only enjoy long reads, – you must read it all – (it’s a thriller? ) – but have read the author for years and consider him interesting and trustworthy. With very dry humour, wit, caustic comments, so …

    I have changed, made up my mind, suddenly realise and remember, consider, other disparaged groups.

    Like tobacco lovers.

    I like people that help me burst through the propaganda event horizon.

    Have a look at this.

    Before The Measles Vaccine
    One of the most important points to note is that the deadly scourge of measles was largely eliminated in developed nations long before vaccinations were introduced.

    https://malagabay.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/uk-measles-1838-1978.gif
    _

    Pox parties, indeed!

    I didn’t need a party, a couple of weeks of miserableness in early life and it was all over …

    Well I am immune for life;- the vaccines aren’t 100% effective, perhaps, and follow the money later.
    _

    Please read the whole page;- surely you could read a 300+pp thriller? – so bookmark to read at least!

    At the very end there are comments … as on lots of good blog sites.

    In there, this link further:

    http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/herd-immunity-myth-or-reality

    Sample (never mind the long hair!) paragraph, and back to your question (last two sentences:)
    _

    Let us now remind ourselves that the touted purpose of establishing herd immunity via a high degree of vaccination compliance is to be able to promptly cease any outbreak of a benign childhood disease so that a vulnerable but vaccine-ineligible population (i.e., infants or individuals taking immuno-suppressive medications) could avoid contracting the disease that is dangerous only at their age or given their state of health. To prevent an outbreak, 70-95% of the population, according to very-broad theoretical estimates, has to be truly immune – that is, resistant to viral infection, not just protected from developing the full range of symptoms that conform to the accepted clinical definition of the disease. However, even 100% vaccination compliance can at best make only a quarter of the population become resistant to infection for more than ten years. This makes it apparent that stable herd immunity cannot be achieved via childhood vaccination in the long term regardless of the degree of vaccination compliance.

    Lots more to grok and think about there IMHO – that was just a tiny extract.
    _

    Hopefully I can get in to a reply comment mode here and elsewhere soon or at least in some time.

    This is an experimental post.

    How much really free speech liberal thought honesty is there really in this blog?

    More later on the smoking nonsense & etc.

    • it’s time to snap on the rubber gloves is a good start lol. Might I add how lucky I feel to be so tasked.

      Now you are just testing if I have indeed read the whole tome, as they have introduced risky masturbation as a comparison of death stats. Masturbation is far more dangerous than measles.

      I was a bit worried that the Bingo ad. was advocating that Bingo can be injurious to one’s health also, but they gave no stats.

      “Using myth-shattering graphs, this book shows that vaccines, antibiotics, and other medical interventions are not responsible for the increase in lifespan and the decline in mortality from infectious diseases.” Quick tell the third world that, and the UN, we can save a fortune, good to know.

      No ‘pox’ party should ever be prophylactic free and fun at them should be outlawed.

      “In conclusion, vaccinated homeschool children were found to have a higher rate of allergies and NDD [neurodevelopmental disorders] than unvaccinated homeschool children.” So homeschooling is not a good idea?

      It would seem ridiculous to think that the measles virus doesn’t mutate because nothing chooses to be extinct and we have good examples with the influenza virus and we are such good hosts. So if the measles vaccine itself hasn’t changed then efficacy would be less.

      To be fair, I do try not to take adVICE from anyone with the name Dr. Strangelove.

      Vaccine contamination appears to be of major issue along with mercury.

      “A senior professor told her that the vaccine program was so contaminated that HIV might well have spread through it without any need for military intervention”. Is that due to there being monkey dna? And I am not sure what military intervention means. Too much homosexual sex in the military?

      In conclusion, the author is saying that viruses and us have a symbiotic relationship and that nature should be allowed to take its course?

      So follow the money and ignore the nations competing with each other to be the first to be measles free and that the vaccines are so weak that they do not give lifelong immunity unlike the pox parties of old.

      Declaring a problem looking for a solution. And we should just let it be.

      It is always fun when ‘experts’ can’t agree, so we should be not so much vaxxed but vexed.

    • It did make me think about weakened strains though, and whether or not that affects the immunity, if you have a mild case of the measles occurring naturally I would expect you to still be immune to the same degree as it is the anti-bodies that make the difference.

      I am not sure how that works but like homeopathy, if you believe in that.

    Do not know if I am helpful, or best just to ignore me. 🙂
